Got this one a couple days ago, I bet there's a chicken with a sore butt somewhere!

Next to a normal egg...



In an 18 pack that won't close now...

Are you sure a goose didn't sneak into your chicken coop?  :dunno:

I have seen a few double yoke eggs come out every year from my parents chickens. Sucks they don't fit with the others but it's a bonus!

I get one a month from a Barnvelder hen we have. All the other eggs are average, but then  :yike:
A typical double yoker has two small yokes, but this hen gives us 2 full size yokes  :tup:

always a nice surprise bonus

Fun!  I've noticed that we gotten more double-yolkers after 4th of july or after a thunder storm. It's fun to find.

We get those every once in a while as well. Never had a shelled egg inside one as some get.  I seem to recall we had a triple yolker a few years back.

I used to live near a chicken farm and we'd buy the oversized eggs(too large to fit a flat) for $.50 a dozen by the case full.  They'd put eggs in every other hole on the flat.  It was turkey farming country and we could buy turkey eggs for the same price, they were even bigger but great for baking.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.
